Contributions can be full papers, review papers, or notes. Full papers or reviews can be up to 5 pages long (including tables, figures, and any appendixes) and notes can be up to 3 pages long. ‘A printed page with no title, tables, or figures, will have about 870 words.’ The subject category of each contribution should be clearly indicated on the first page. The categories are as follows: anatomy, avian pathology, bacteriology, biochemistry, clinical pathology, ethology, immunology, internal medicine, laboratory animal science, parasitology, pathology, pharmacology, physiology, public health, surgery, theriogenology, toxicology, virology, or wildlife science.



All manuscripts must be uploaded at as *.doc files (and not as *.docx files) and as *.ppt, *.xls, *.jpg, or *.tiff as required. The system then automatically creates a single file in pdf, which is used in the reviewing process. Contributions may be edited for language if the editorial board considers it necessary, and authors are charged for this service. Instructions to authors are available at



Authors may suggest two reviewers at the time of uploading the contribution. The Journal of Veterinary Medical Science insists on proper ethical standards related to the care and use of animals and will reject papers if those standards are not adhered to. All experiments involving animals must have been approved by an appropriate committee constituted by the author’s institution.



The journal uses the Vancouver system for citations: citation numbers are printed in line (not as superscripts) and enclosed within square brackets. Abstracts of full papers and review papers are limited to 240 words and those of notes, to 120 words.



The impact factor for 2014 is 0.782.
